In recent years, museums have increasingly taken on the role of educational sites with the function of promoting social and cultural integration, in particular through some methodologies such as Digital Storytelling (DST), Virtual Reality (VR) and the personalisation of museum routes. Starting from this assumption, the Centro di Didattica Museale of the University of Roma Tre, within the framework of the University project “Inclusive Memory”, carried out the experimentation of an inclusive Etruscan exhibition in VR through the webapp E-Trouria, aimed at fostering the construction of a shared collective social memory, combining DST methodologies with learning models based on Visual Thinking and Critical Thinking. The pilot experiment, carried out with the participation of students of the CdL in Primary Education Sciences and Pedagogical Sciences, belonging to the Department of Education Sciences, presents results worthy of attention with regard to the promotion of individualised and effective educational pathways in fully digital contexts.
